Ghostbusters 2020 Director Teases The Return Of The Ecto-1

Ghostbusters 2020 director Jason Reitman teased the return of the Ecto-1. Arguably one of the most instantly recognizable vehicles in cinema, the Ecto-1 was first unveiled in the original 1984 Ghostbusters. Constructed out of a transformed station wagon, both its siren and appearance instantly send Ghostbusters fans back to the 1980s.

With the somewhat recent announcement that the Ghostbusters would once again be setting off into the ongoing battle against supernatural forces, die-hard fans of the films are hoping that this third entry in the franchise is worth their time. Almost 30 years have passed since Ghostbusters II followed up on the success of the first film, and although a third film was repeatedly promised by co-creator Dan Aykroyd, numerous setbacks throughout the years (including the apparent reluctance of Bill Murray to get involved) have made the possibility of Ghostbusters 3 seem very remote. As all Ghostbusters fans also know, an attempt at taking the franchise in a different direction with 2016’s female-led Ghostbusters wasn’t much of a success.

Now with Ghostbusters 2020 on its way, fans are once again feeling like perhaps they will get the sequel they’ve been hoping for. Jason Reitman, son of Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters II director Ivan Reitman, has been tight-lipped about exactly what this new Ghostbusters film will bring. Aside from some recently announced casting decisions, not much has been seen or heard about Ghostbusters 2020. Now, however, thanks to Reitman’s Instagram account, fans have a glimpse at the celebrated original Ecto-1, along with Reitman’s quip of, “You guys ready to get rolling?”

You guys ready to get rolling?

The image could be Reitman’s way of announcing that principal photography on Ghostbusters 2020 is about to begin, though this has yet to be officially confirmed. This isn’t the first time that fans have been teased by a look at the Ecto-1, either. Back in January, the film’s first official teaser arrived, showcasing bits of the famed Ghostbusters vehicle from beneath a tarp in a disused barn. Though it was strange to see the Ecto-1 outside of New York City and in a far more rural environment, it’s worth noting that Reitman’s Instagram account listed his location as Calgary, Alberta, Canada. It has earlier been reported that Ghostbusters 2020 will be filming in June, in Calgary, meaning that filming has likely now officially kicked off.

Based on what little amounts of information we do have on Ghostbusters 2020, it’s clear that a new generation of Ghostbusters will be taking on the task of busting ghosts. Unfortunately for die-hard fans, what this means is that once again, the return of the original Ghostbusters in their own film is not in the cards. Still, Reitman’s connection to the series is far deeper than any fan’s could ever be, meaning that he carries with him the pressure of delivering something that is a fitting and suitable upgrade to a franchise that has entertained so many.

Big Little Lies Season 2 Was Heavily Re-Edited Without Director

Big Little Lies season 2 was substantially re-edited during post-production without director Andrea Arnold’s involvement, according to a new report. Fans were naturally wary when HBO ordered a second round of Big Little Lies after its highly-decorated freshman run. After all, season 1 had already covered the entirety of author Liane Moriarty’s source novel and was originally designed to function as a limited series. Fortunately, the series’ new slate of episodes have gone over exceptionally well with critics and general audiences since season 2 began airing in early June.

In addition to series newcomer Meryl Streep’s efforts as Mary Louise Wright – the mother of Perry (Alexander Skarsgård), the abusive husband who was killed at the end of season 1 – and the work from the returning cast, reviewers have taken well to Arnold’s direction and the way the show has committed to fully wrestling with the fallout of its first season’s finale. However, according to a new report, season 2 doesn’t actually represent Arnold’s creative vision. Far from it, she was allegedly locked out of the season’s editing altogether, despite being praised by her cast, crew, and HBO throughout production.

The news hales from IndieWire, which has learned from multiple trusted sources close to the production that Arnold was granted free rein by HBO and the show’s producers to shoot Big Little Lies season 2 in the same style as her critically acclaimed films like Fish Tank and American Honey. Once filming had wrapped, though, the network and showrunner David E. Kelley brought Jean-Marc Vallée (who helmed season 1) into post-production to rework her footage and make it feel more like the show’s original season. IndieWire‘s sources also allege that this was the plan from the start (to eventually have Vallée take over, that is), and that Arnold was – for (currently) unexplained reasons – not told this ahead of time.

Ultimately, Arnold was unable to finalize a complete cut of a single episode before Vallée came in and essentially took over. The latter, who had initially passed on season 2 because he was preoccupied with HBO’s Sharp Objects adaptation at that time, subsequently scheduled seventeen days of reshoots and additional photography in order to help further reshape the season. And while HBO has now issued a statement claiming that they and Big Little Lies‘ executive producers are all “extremely proud” of Arnold’s contributions to the series, IndieWire‘s article indicates that she had little actual input on season 2 after Vallée returned to the fold.

Frankly, assuming that this report is accurate, it’s a pretty bad look for HBO. It suggests that Arnold was told that she would be free to shape Big Little Lies season 2 in her own style, but that the series’ producers never really intended to uphold that promise and didn’t actually explain their greater plans to her. At the same time, they continued to play up her creative involvement throughout production and editing in order to benefit from the positive publicity that came with having hired a celebrated female director to work on a show that has long prided itself on being a drama that features women in major capacities on both sides of the camera. However one feels about season 2’s actual quality, these behind the scenes issues are a mess to unpack.

Midsommar Director Confirms Director’s Cut With Extra 30 Minutes

Ari Aster has announced that a director’s cut with 30 more minutes is on the way for Midsommar, his sophomore feature, following last year’s widely successful psychological horror-thriller, Hereditary. The film has been regarded as one of the year’s scariest films.

Written and directed by Aster himself, Midsommar stars Jack Reynor and Florence Pugh as a couple who take a trip to Sweden to visit their friend’s hometown. At first, it seems that they are there to enjoy the annual mid-summer festival, but they eventually end up caught in the practices of a pagan cult. Pugh stars as Dani, a young woman who is struggling to find acceptance in the world as she joins her boyfriend Christian (Reynor) in Sweden with the rest of his friends. Aster has stated that at its core, Midsommar is a breakup film, but it’s easy to forget that once the viewer becomes ensnared by the insanity taking place in the Swedish village. And those that desired more from the film to make sense out of its bonkers ending may have something to look forward to, as Aster has announced an extended cut is on the horizon.

Related: 10 Folk Horror Films To See If You Loved Midsommar

During a recent Reddit AMA, Aster revealed that he was in the process of putting together a director’s cut, which would include thirty extra minutes of footage. The film’s first cut was three hours and forty-five minutes, which he trimmed down to its current theatrical release. He didn’t discuss what exactly would be added to the extended version, but it’s possible it can include sequences that bring clarity to some of the questions that left many moviegoers confused. After being asked about the potential of seeing a director’s cut, Aster responded stating:

“Working on extended cut now. Won’t be 1 hr 20 mins longer, but will be at least 30 mins longer.”

An extra thirty minutes watching Pugh take audiences on a very emotional trip into madness is just what horror fans need. Indeed, Midsommar is probably going to be remembered as this year’s most deranged film, but it is also beautifully structured and awe-inspiring to watch unfold. What Aster includes in the director’s cut is up to him and it probably won’t take away from how the film has been received, but it could strengthen the rift that exists between moviegoers and critics.

Once the director’s cut arrives, it will be interesting to see the conversation it sparks, if any. It is not yet known when fans can expect the director’s cut to arrive, but it could release alongside the theatrical cut, as a physical and digital selection. Those who thought Midsommar was disturbing enough as it is may be fine with the original, but for those that want to see what could have potentially been included, Aster seems more than happy to deliver.

The Lighthouse First Look Photo: The Director of The Witch is Back

Willem Dafoe and Robert Pattinson boast some impressive facial hair in the first-look photo from Robert Eggers’ new horror film, The Lighthouse. It’s been a few years now since Eggers broke out onto the scene with his feature debut, The Witch. Fully titled The Witch: A New England Folktale, the drama earned a whole ton of buzz at Sundance in 2015 and is still ranked among the best horror movies of the decade by many genre buffs. It also made a star out of Anya-Taylor Joy, before she went on to appear in M. Night Shymalan’s Split and Glass.

However, like a lot of arthouse horror offerings, The Witch struggled to cross over into the mainstream. It didn’t need to, fortunately, and ultimately grossed ten times its $4 million budget at the global box office. While Eggers reportedly still wants to reunite with Taylor-Joy on a remake of the silent vampire classic Nosferatu, his sophomore effort will take on the form of an original movie titled The Lighthouse. Now, A24 has begun to pull back the curtain on the film.

While The Lighthouse doesn’t have a release date just yet, it’s been confirmed to premiere at the Cannes Film Festival as part of the Directors’ Fortnight program in May. Dafoe and Pattinson are starring in the film as (respectively) a 19th century lighthouse keeper known as Old and his younger associate. In response to the Cannes announcement, A24 released an image of the pair in the movie online. Take a look in the space below.

Among other things, The Witch was celebrated for its unsettling, tense sense of atmosphere and meticulous attention to historical detail (from its natural lighting to its archaic New England dialogue). The Lighthouse is expected to have most of the same qualities, and was shot in black and white 35 mm no less. Dafoe and Pattinson certainly have the look of working-class men who keep a lighthouse running in the 1800s down pat, based on this image alone. The film is described as a fantasy, so there’s presumably some supernatural element to the story that contributes to the harrowing, isolated nature of their existence (a la the family in The Witch).

For Pattinson, The Lighthouse marks yet another intriguing development in his evolution as a character actor. The Twilight star has left his heartthrob days firmly behind in order to play a variety of roughshod and sometimes downright repulsive characters in recent indie and/or arthouse films like Good Time, The Lost City of Z, and this month’s High Life. Similarly, The Lighthouse sits next to Midsommar on this year’s list of anticipated scary offerings from filmmakers who made their grand entrance with acclaimed, if decidedly cult horror movies in the past few years. It’s definitely one to keep an eye out for.

Boyz n the Hood Director John Singleton Hospitalized After Stroke

Boyz n the Hood director was John Singleton hospitalized after suffering a stroke. The acclaimed filmmaker made history when he became the first black American to be nominated for a Best Director Oscar in the wake of Boyz n the Hood’s 1991 release, as well as being the youngest ever recipient of the honor, at age 24.

Though Singleton’s post-Boyz n the Hood output hasn’t reached the same status as that of his zeitgeist-defining 1990s inner-city drama, he has maintained a consistent output throughout the years, shifting more recently into TV. In fact, Singleton hasn’t made a feature film since 2011’s Taylor Lautner-led Abduction, which received a rather cold reception at the US box office, faring only slightly better internationally. That being said, Singleton’s work on the popular series Snowfall – about the early days of the crack cocaine epidemic and its effect on 1980s era Los Angeles – has been of particular note, as has his work on the Emmy-nominated documentary L.A. Burning: The Riots 25 Years Later.

Regardless of his cinematic or television output, the most recent news regarding Singleton is health related. According to Variety, the 51-year-old filmmaker has been hospitalized as the result of a stroke. Singleton’s family has released a statement, which states that the Boyz n the Hood director is “currently in the ICU and under great medical care.” The attending doctors have already characterized the stroke as “mild” and Singleton’s family is asking that the media and public now respect their privacy. The full statement reads as follows:

“John is currently in the ICU and under great medical care. We ask that privacy be given to him and our family at this time and appreciate all of the prayers that have been pouring in from his fans, friends and colleagues.”

Aside from the genuine quality of Boyz n the Hood, one of the reasons why the film found its mark so resolutely is that it focused on the realities that were occurring in America at that time. The tale of a group of friends dealing with the often-chaotic realities of life in 1990s South Central Los Angeles gave voice to a generation ravaged by poverty, gangs, and gun crime. Its unflinching ability to build empathy and awareness in its audiences broke down numerous social barriers of the time and helped give rise to a new era of black filmmaking in Hollywood.

With eight years having passed since he last released a feature film, fans of Singleton have been united in the opinion that it’s high time for something new. And while today, Hollywood continues to work toward more diverse and inclusive content, it’s definitely worth remembering that it was filmmakers like John Singleton who took those initial steps years earlier, putting issues faced by many marginalized people and communities directly in the spotlight.

The Live-Action Lion King is Not a Shot-For-Shot Remake Says Director

The live-action Lion King is not a shot-for-shot remake. Ranked by many as one of the best animated Disney films of all time, The Lion King blew audiences away upon its release in 1994 and has since gone on to be among the top ten highest-grossing animated films that Disney has ever released.

With this kind of clout behind one of its titles, and given the phenomenal success of Disney’s 2016 live-action retelling of The Jungle Book, few were shocked to learn that the new trend of retelling animated classics in a live-action format was going to take on The Lion King. And, as director Jon Favreau had done such a great job with The Jungle Book, Disney had no qualms with assigning him the monumental task of bringing one of the most cherished animated films of all time to life.

Related: Jon Favreau Details His Approach To Remaking The Lion King

Ever since Disney announced that they would be putting together a live-action version of The Lion King, fans everywhere have felt a distinct mixture of excitement and slight anxiety over how such a beloved title could be reproduced in live-action. Despite assurances late last year from Disney that The Lion King would not be a shot-for-shot remake, fans remained somewhat skeptical. Now, however, IndieWire is reporting that Favreau has doubled-down on that promise, though he has pointed out that some shots in the original are so iconic that they had to be left in. Favreau said:

“The original holds up incredibly well, so the challenge here was to tell a story in a different way but still deliver on people’s expectations while surprising them somehow.”

Favreau’s assurances will likely do much to quell any fears that die-hard fans might have had over the remake, though the film’s recent trailer has offered a glimpse at something so visually stunning that few can resist predicting a huge future for it. Compared to Disney’s Will Smith-backed live-action retelling of Aladdin (arriving in theaters next month), The Lion King’s buzz has been decidedly more positive – though much of this can be arguably attributed to the fact that Aladdin had left a truly indelible mark on an entire generation, thanks to the late Robin Williams’ performance as the film’s genie. That sort of legacy will never be forgotten, and Smith, along with the rest of the Aladdin remake’s cast and crew, have perhaps been judged too soon on the work they’ve done to give fans a different perspective on the tale.

However, the general impression that The Lion King currently gives off – not just from its trailer, but also from its stacked cast (including the voices of James Earl Jones, Seth Rogen, Donald Glover, and Beyonce) – is of a film that has every chance of ruling the summer box office. Favreau already has the proven experience and skill to pull off a live-action remake of this caliber, and his assurances that it won’t simply be a shot-for-shot remake means that much is in store for Lion King fans both old and new.

Bumblebee Director Travis Knight to Helm Six Billion Dollar Man Movie

Travis Knight has found his Bumblebee followup project, and will now direct Warner Bros.’ The Six Billion Dollar Man movie. He only made his directorial debut in 2016 with the stop-motion animated feature Kubo and the Two Strings, but recently found great success with Bumblebee in helping Paramount reboot the Transformers franchise. His new project, meanwhile, hasn’t had an easy time getting off the ground.

Six Billion Dollar Man has been gestating in development for several years with Mark Wahlberg – who also recently had a stint in the Transformers universe. The film previously received a November 2017 release date, but Wahlberg’s busy schedule and the need to further improve the project resulted in Six Billion Dollar Man not meeting this date. Instead, the film has seen several possible start up points, with release dates set for 2019 and then 2020, the latter coming after director Damián Szifrón left the project. After almost a year, his replacement has now been found.

Related: Our Travis Knight Interview For Bumblebee

Variety reports that Bumblebee‘s Knight has signed on to take over directing duties on Six Billion Dollar Man. Wahlberg is still attached to star in the film, which is a new adaptation of the 1970s TV show The Six Million Dollar Man, and will play a new version of Colonel Steve Austin – a former astronaut who becomes a secret agent and receives bionic implants that give him superhuman strength. Knight reportedly chose Six Billion Dollar Man over a variety of other potential projects from different studios.

The addition of Knight on Six Billion Dollar Man should guarantee that the movie finally begins moving through pre-production and towards filming actually beginning in the near future. That said, there’s currently no word on what the actual vision for the movie is going to be. Previously recruited directors (like Peter Berg) pointed to this potentially being a more mature sci-fi action film. Knight’s previous credits do not hint at such a style, as Kubo and the Two Strings and Bumblebee both are centered around great characters and relationships, so he may have been recruited to give Six Billion Dollar Man a more traditional blockbuster tone.

Even though Knight’s addition comes after WB had several issues getting the movie going, he now boards Six Billion Dollar Man with a mostly clean slate. The previous script written by Szifrón has been scrapped and Bill DuBuque (The AccountantOzark) is taking over writing duties. He will likely be working closely with Knight to craft their version of the film. One of the best things for Knight and DuBuque right now though is that WB previously removed the project from their slate, meaning there’s no predetermined release date they need to rush to hit. With the new pieces in place and Knight’s supervision, hopefully this will be the time that The Six Billion Dollar Man makes substantial progress.

Shazam! Director Offers Behind the Scenes Look At His [SPOILER] Cameo

SPOILERS for Shazam ahead.

Shazam! director David F. Sandberg has offered a behind the scenes look at his cameo as one of the Crocodile Men. The DC Extended Universe film has quickly become a success, earning strong reviews and more than doubling its budget at the global box office so far. Unsurprisingly, Warner Bros. has already gotten the ball rolling on the sequel, which will build on the first movie’s mid-credits introduction to the villainous caterpillar, Mister Mind. Shazam! writer Henry Gayden is currently working on the followup, with Sandberg expected to officially sign on as director any day now.

In the meantime, Sandberg is keeping busy entertaining fans with more Shazam!-related trivia. It had already been revealed that the director appears in the movie as one of the Crocodile Men, who are shown playing cards behind one of the doors that Billy Batson and his foster siblings open in the Rock of Eternity (while they’re being chased by Sivana and the Seven Sins). Now, Sandberg has provided a glimpse at the process that he went through to become one of those reptilian men.

Related: Shazam 2: Mister Mind’s Origin & Powers Explained

Sandberg posted a series of images to his Instagram account, showing him being fitted for a mold for his Crocodile Man mask. The post also includes a pair of clips where the filmmaker tries out the mask’s animatronics, along with a short video that offers an up-close look at one of the mask’s motorized eyes. You can check the whole thing out in the space below.

Funnily enough, Sandberg’s cameo could payoff in a big way in Shazam! 2 or another future DCEU film. In the New 52 comics (which Shazam! draws from), the Crocodile Men hale from a region of the Seven Magical Realms known as the Wildlands, where animals walk around talking and wearing clothing just like humans from our world. Of course, there’s no guarantee that magical land will show up in the Shazam! sequel, given how expensive it would be to bring to life on the big screen. Part of the reason the first movie’s a success is because Sandberg was able to keep its budget down to a manageable $100 million, so WB might prefer to continue that approach with the followup. If so, it’s unlikely Billy and his family will be exploring The Magiclands anytime soon in the DCEU.

Either way, this is a fun glimpse behind the scenes at Sandberg’s cameo and one of many playful DC easter eggs in Shazam!. It’s also a testament to just much Sandberg clearly enjoyed making the movie, and all but assures that he’ll be back for more on Shazam! 2.  Whether he shows up dressed as an anthropomorphic reptile again or tries his hand at playing another fantastical creature in the sequel, of course, remains to be seen.

Sandlot TV Show In The Works For Disney+ From Original Film’s Director

The Sandlot is getting its own TV show on Disney+ with the original film’s director returning. Released in 1993, The Sandlot was a coming of age story about a group of kids with a love for baseball. While the film was released in the ’90s, the events of the film took place in the summer of 1962.

The Sandlot has become a cult classic over the years, with the popularity of the movie never seeming to go away. Two direct to video sequels called The Sandlot 2 and The Sandlot: Heading Home came out in 2005 and 2007 respectively, but like most direct to video movies, they weren’t as well received as the original film. Last year it was announced that The Sandlot was getting a prequel film, but it was also revealed last month that The Sandlot was also getting a sequel TV series. Not much is known about the prequel film at this point, but some new information has come to light on the TV show.

Related: Disney+ Costs $6.99 Per Month, $69.99 For Annual Subscription

According to Variety, Disney+ will be developing The Sandlot series, with director David Mickey Evans returning to write and produce the show. When the series was revealed last month, it was believed that many of the actors from the first film would make a comeback for the sequel series, which is still believed to be the case at this point. That being said, it was also previously revealed that this TV show would take place in 1984 and focus more on the children of the original characters.

While The Sandlot is one example of a new show coming to Disney+, the House of Mouse has several other projects planned. Disney is developing several Star Wars TV shows, such as the highly anticipated The Mandalorian and the Rogue One: A Star Wars Story prequel series starring Diego Luna. Disney has also made plans to create Marvel TV shows such as the Falcon and Winter Soldier series, as well as a series focusing on Scarlet Witch and Vision. On top of the original content, Disney is also planning on bringing all Pixar, Star Wars, and most Marvel movies to their new streaming service.

Fans have been waiting for a true sequel to The Sandlot for years, especially since the direct to video sequels received such negative reviews. While this news doesn’t reveal anything new about the plot of the show, having the series come to Disney+ is an intriguing revelation since The Sandlot was originally distributed by 20th Century Fox (which Disney of course recently acquired). With The Sandlot TV show landing at Disney+, fans are no doubt wondering what Disney has planned for other popular franchises. Needless to say, Star Wars and Marvel movies have been heavy hitters for Disney in recent years, but a TV series that revisits the characters from The Sandlot has a lot of prospect as well given the original film’s fanbase.

Shazam Sequel Brings Back Original Writer, Director Expected To Return

Warner Bros. has reportedly hired Henry Gayden to write the script for Shazam 2, and David F. Sandberg is likely to direct again. The studio is fresh off the worldwide launch of their latest DC live-action movie and Shazam! has wasted no time showing that it will be a successful film. Critics and audiences are loving the movie, and the opening weekend numbers – while a low point for the DCEU – are actually a win thanks to a lower budget.

With so much attention put on Shazam!, fans have already begun dreaming about the possibility of a sequel. The first film is very much an origin story for Billy Batson (Asher Angel) as he learns about his superpowers as Shazam (Zachary Levi) and is largely self-contained – even with some DCEU connections. But in usual franchise style, Shazam! also sets the stage for more chapters of this story that can be told.

Related: Everything We Know About Shazam 2

According to The Wrap, it appears WB, New Line, and DC are ready to move forward on another story. They’ve reportedly decided to bring back Henry Gayden to write the screenplay for Shazam 2 after he co-wrote the original movie. He received sole screenplay credit on the first film, but the story is credited to him and Darren Lemke. Gayden’s return helps set Shazam 2 in motion, with director David F. Sandberg and producer Peter Safran also expected to return, according to this report.

Gayden is still a relative newcomer to studio movies, as Earth to Echo was his first credit in 2014, but he already has had great success thanks to Shazam. The movie was able to strike a great tone amidst the heartfelt story and laugh-out-loud comedy, and this is largely thanks to the script that Gayden was responsible for producing. Since Shazam is a big hit, it’s no surprise that the studios decided to bring him back for another entry.

It also immediately starts Shazam 2 off by keeping those familiar with the franchise around, and this appears to be true beyond just Gayden. Both Sandberg and Safran previously teased that they would like to come back for a sequel, and even though deals for both may not be signed as of right now, those announcements could arrive in the coming months as Gayden works on the script. Of course, Shazam 2 has yet to be officially greenlit by the studios, but that is all but guaranteed to happen.

As Shazam 2 continues to make progress, fans will undoubtedly want to know when they will get to see it. The studios will likely want to move fast on production on account of the young cast that the original featured, but DC already has a very crowded slate as it is. Regardless, some story details about the sequel can probably be predicted from how Shazam! ended, which sets up an exciting tale for Gayden to craft.
